‘7th Heaven’ Reruns Dropped Amid Star’s Child Molestation Investigation

UP TV has pulled reruns of “7th Heaven” from its programming schedule following media reports that star Stephen Collins is being investigated for child molestation.

The network, which carries ‘Uplifting’ family friendly content, airs in 67 millions across the U.S.

“As a top family-friendly network, we are deeply concerned for the families that are potentially affected by these disturbing allegations surrounding actor Stephen Collins,” Charley Humbard, president & CEO, UP said in a statement. “‘7th Heaven’ has been a beloved family show and a fan-favorite on our network. We have made the decision to remove the series from our schedule effective at 5 p.m. ET today. We will continue to monitor the situation and listen carefully to our viewers. Replacing ‘7th Heaven’ tonight will be ‘Supernanny,’ a series dedicated to bringing families together.”

Collins, who played a pastor in the long-running series, resigned from SAG-AFTRA’s board on Tuesday after being fired from Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted 2.”

TMZ posted an alleged confession of the actor discussing lewd acts with children ages 10 and 12 years old.

A spokesman for the actor could not be reached for comment.
